Re: posterior tibial tendon repair surgery

can I ask someone if they think that have surgery for ptt is a good idea if you are unsure what stage you are at with this problem. I also had a fracture one year ago on the same foot, and have had nothing but pain for this full year. Have seen two doctors, one thought it was just stubborn tendonitis, other doctor thought he could help with surgery. But he only told me the other doc was wrong and my tendon has shredded and I need to create a new one and reconstruct the other side to raise the foot to give me an arch. Need to be sure before I go through this turmoil. Maybe I should seek another opinion. Can anyone help me.
